A bullet was shot through a window in Obama's Denver campaign office, while there were people inside. It's a miracle no one was killed. Man, we have some crazy people!

I thought it was out of hand when the opposition started showing posters of Obama with a hanging noose around his neck, not to mention the old hanging empty chair in the front yard symbol. I mean, how many ways can you say "Let's lynch that n*gg*r!". There is also a t-shirt that's become popular among the hate set that says "Let's put the white back in White House". I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see KKK endorsements for Romney purely out of racial hatred.
Yup... death threats from both sides... vandalism from both sides... it's sick.
It's a shame these people are not more upset at our democracy turning into a plutocracy.
Instead of shooting bullets into campaign headquarters, why don't they peacefully protest our very undemocratic system?
Saw that on the news tonight, wow how crazy are things going to get? As soon as he went in office I was afraid he would be assassinated. I could see the hatefulness immediatley. I can not wait for this election to be over...I am embarrassed of the way we make ourselves look to the rest of the world...Here they have actual murderous leaders and we have this amazing country and some semblance of freedom and we act like school children without manners or brains...It's just sad.
Habee, this has been going on since the last election. From the libel and slander of the Birthers, to the illegal attacks on ACORN to the creeps showing up with guns in their holsters, the message has been clear. And let's not forget the gun sights marking Sarah Palin's enemies. Some people want to take over this nation. They are close to doing so. Enjoy your freedom of speech while you have it because they will not stop now.
While we have it? Do you know something we don't?
Do you mean like the gun sights sprinkled all over this map? They even used the word target, how frightening!

Xenonit, do you support support the threats of violence coming from your side if Obama looses?
Obama Supporters Threaten to Kill Romney if he Wins Election

New Threats to Riot if Obama Loses Election

And you question the mental stability of Mitt Romney.
Should these people not be questioned and possibly arrested for their threats just as the person who fired a shot into Obama Denver office should be?
What is your answer, Xenonlit?
This election has shown more hate than any I have seen. The posters on Facebook have been sick. Talking of lynching a president it particularly sick.
Some blame this hate on certain TV stations firing both parties up. There are some radio programs that are just as bad. I agree that we are making our nation look bad to others.
I'm a Christian Conservative who has a permit to carry a gun. It can't be expressed strongly enough that what happened at the Obama Denver office was appalling and very stupid.
However, something tells me if this had been a Romney office instead, the libs would be jumping for joy, wishing someone had been killed, and the liberal news media would be doing all they could to NOT cover it.
This is a perfect example of people deliberately slandering and stereotyping everyone on the other side. I am a liberal, and I would be horrified at ANY side using terrorism and bullying to try to overpower the other side. So don't be pretending that you know what others think just because you disagree with them.
You're right, HP. I should have said "most" libs, thus leaving off the ones who still respect life, even those of Conservatives. My apologies.
Sarcasm not appreciated. You're still stereotyping people just because you disagree with them.
Although you are certainly welcome to believe what you want, there was no sarcasm nor stereotype intended, HP.
I tell you what, I'll give libs the benefit of the doubt by say "most" if you'll do the same for me. My apology was sincere.
How about saying "some", as there are obviously SOME jerks on both sides of political issues that are making us all wonder what the other side could possibly be thinking to act like that. MOST of us on BOTH sides are not doing these stupid and obnoxious things. It's like the rational people on either side who have definite opinions are being tarred with a brush that we don't deserve. On both sides, we need to be aware of that, and to show some understanding and compassion for people that we don't agree with. If we'd all choose to fight the extremists among us, we'd take that moment to remind ourselves that good people in a democracy can disagree with each other and still remain civil.

So...Romney drove with his dog in a crate on the roof of his car, and Obama ate dog meat in Indonesia. Both these stories are getting WAY too much press. Aren't voters more interested in the economy, jobs, the deficit,...

Like the Rockafellers, I think both sides need weopans and while I am neither religious or atheist, I think it's only fare. This may seem strange to some, but to me it makes perfect sense. The problem lay in words, not...

Why do emotions run so high between some Republicans and some Democrats? Is there any room for compromise? Does being a member of the "other party" make a person a bad person?
